Organising a family holiday can be stressful, especially if you’ve got young children. Far-flung, exotic destinations might not be an option with the kids in tow, but it doesn’t mean that you can’t have a well-deserved relaxing and fun holiday. Here are some great child friendly holidays ideas.
I love taking photos, and Boo has always been interested, and she has had a couple of toy cameras and loved to pretend to take photos with them. So, for her 3rd Birthday my husband and I decided to get her a camera of her very own! After having a look about and reading a fair few reviews I chose the VTech KidiZoom Duo Camera. And I am so glad I did, Boo loves it and it’s amazing!
Boo was very happy when we woke up to snow on Friday morning. It was only a tiny layer on the garden but it was enough for us to have a snowball fight and build a very cute, and very tiny snowman.
Boo insisted that we place the snowman on the top of her sand/water table, I thought it was very lovely that she wanted him up there, with a lovely view over the rest of the garden. The fact that she then aimed all of her subsequent snowballs at the mini snowman probably indicates that she wanted him up there to make him a better target!
She had a great time out in the garden, proving that even the smallest dusting of snow can provide endless fun for a toddler. We stopped short of making snow angels, by the time Boo suggested them our garden looked more mud than snow so we decided to head inside for a hot chocolate.
So here is our mini snowman/target for snowballs. I love this photo it’s a wonderful memory of a very happy morning spent in the garden playing in the snow.

I have always found Winter a difficult time of year. During the cold dark slog of January/February I find myself lacking motivation and in recent years, I have struggled with what I now know where Fibro flare ups. I am not sure if it’s the cold, the dark, the low mood or a mix of all three. But I have noticed, especially last year that the winter felt like one flare up after another.
